I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

  1. I really enjoy books that have a child with something like Asperger’s. My own son suffers from post traumatic stress disorder and OCD and I always find it very interesting to read other people’s perspective’s and experiences with these sorts of challenges. A lovely review, Olga. It sounds like you really enjoyed this book.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. I have read some of your posts and read about your son. Some people like to read about subjects with a very personal connection and others not, although I know each case is very individual. I thought this book was very well done and you’re right, I really enjoyed it. Sometimes, when authors approach me about their books, it’s a bit of a mystery, as some are very enthusiastic (of course, I should know, our books are our babies) and others sell themselves short. Sometimes high expectations aren’t met and sometimes the opposite is true. For this one, I remember the author telling me she thought I might like it although it’s a book not easy to classify. It’s a fabulous book. Send my love to your boy.

  2. Some good quotes highlighted, Olga. I have a feeling that this would make a very good film. (I know I often say that, but I like books that I can also visualise on screen.)
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. You’re definitely right on this one. The neighbourhood, the breaking into houses, the grandmother and her birds… As we usually say, with a good cast and director it would be wonderful (or perhaps a good TV series…). Have a great day, Pete.

  3. It sounds very worthwhile, Olga. Great comments here today too. Good luck to Cara. Wishing you well. Hugs!

    1. Thanks, Teagan. I’m going to keep an eye on the author for sure. Have an awesome Tuesday!
